No, Igor: If it comes out of their mouths it is the truth. You on the other hand have to proveRead More everything you say. At least that's the way it seemed when I last did jury duty. Hypocrisy.

Last time I had jury duty, the judge giving the instructions told us that when listening toRead More testimony, the police testimony holds no more credence than the average citizen. If you fight a ticket, guess who the judge is going to believe?

George Soros was the impetus behind the founding of the Democratic Alliance, reports Watchdog.org.

According to William A. Niskanen, one of the architects of Reaganomics, "Reagan delivered onRead More each of his four major policy objectives, although not to the extent that he and his supporters had hoped", and notes that the most substantial change was in the tax code, where the top marginal individual income tax rate fell from 70.1% to 28.4%, and there was a "major reversal in the tax treatment of business income", with effect of "reducing the tax bias among types of investment but increasing the average effective tax rate on new investment". Roger Porter, another architect of the program, acknowledges that the program was weakened by the many hands that changed the President's calculus, such as Congress.[2][21] President Reagan, has remained popular as an antitax hero despite raising taxes eleven times over the course of his presidency, all in the name of fiscal responsibility.[22] Reagan ultimately raised taxes more times than he cut them.[23] According to Paul Krugman, "Over all, the 1982 tax increase undid about a third of the 1981 cut; as a share of GDP, the increase was substantially larger than Mr. Clinton's 1993 tax increase."[10] According to historian and domestic policy adviser Bruce Bartlett, Reagan's tax increases over the course of his presidency took back half of the 1981 tax cut. Though since the Reagan tax reductions, top marginal tax rates have remained lower than at any point in US history since 1931, when the top marginal rate was raised from 25% to 63%. [24]

It's not the number of times that count, it's the size of the resulting cuts, and txes dropped underRead More Reagan, and economy boomed. Reagan's tax increases were part of a deal with Democrats to reduce spending. The taxes went up but the spending cuts never occurred. Just like Reagan's amnesty was supposed to be tied to border enforcement. Reagan's two biggest mistakes involved trusting Democrats to hold up their end of the deal. Those of us who remember that will never be fooled again.

What everyone seems to be forgetting about are the ginormous deductibles on these plans. $12,700.00Read More on a silver plan for myself and my wife when we earn $50K per year combined? And the Bronze plan having and even higher deductible??? So much for affordable health care. This sounds more like silver catastrophic coverage.

You are a paranoid fool who fears a sugar high from the cookies sold by those pre pubescent teases who must be demonized to negate your nasty thoughts. And, Michael, you are a hate spewing racist idiot.

Aw, C'mon Joe and Lynn, can't we all get along? Your president is merely continuing the Bush neo-conRead More policies. In both 2008 and 2012 the top 20 contributors to Obama, McCain and Romney were ALL involved in Wall Street banks, bond attorney law firms, and multinational corporations that keep sending our jobs to Asia. Instead of resorting to name calling, do a little more fact checking with primary sources like not only the one I hyperlinked but also the Federal Elections Commission website. So, while you disparage our person you also concede the truth of our information by failing to refute it. This is probably another hate spewing anecdote but children need their Mothers and Fathers and not the kind of secularism and "independence" which denies the importance of normal families and appropriate relationships. All things considered in this great national issue, it's probably better to bake your own cookies until further notice.
